Sweet-Hot Cocktail Meatballs
Cocktail meatballs are retro party fare. This recipe for Sweet-Hot Cocktail Meatballs is straight from my mother’s recipe files but created with a new twist. Our classic family favorite for New Year’s Eve parties was meatballs cooked in a combination of grape jelly and chili sauce. Here, the sauce gets a little heat with the substitution of hot pepper jelly.
The meatballs can be made several days ahead and reheated before serving. When it’s party time, pull out mom’s fondue pot and enjoy this party classic.
Makes 12 to 16 appetizer servings.
